Mosaic crochet

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been really into mosaic crochet lately. I love all of the possibilities that come with designing a mosaic crochet piece.

I like the way this mosaic colorwork technique creates a fabulous texture that looks like knit. Although my mosaic pattern is fairly simple to follow, it requires a bit of concentraction as the pattern is quite intricate. That’s why I have included heavy step-by-step picture tutorial at the end of the pattern to show the placement of the stitches.

There are no color changes within the working row and you’re only working one color at a time.

The Yarn

Made with Scheppjes Stone Washed soft and woolly feel cotton/acrylic yarn, this textured and gorgeous crochet pillow will personalize any home and add a little bit of extra handmade warmth. I highly recommend this yarn if you want to make this something really special, but you can use almost any other sport weight yarn you wish that gets you the same gauge.

Mosaic crochet patterns work the best with contrasting colors, but use the two of shades you prefer to make it personal.

Materials & Tools:

  1. Yarn Scheepjes Stone Washed 50g = 130m, 78% Cotton, 22% Acrylic, in 2 different colours:

Yarn A: Enstatite (832) – 1 skein

Yarn B: Moon Stone (801) – 3 skeins.

  • Hook  size 3.5mm. Adjust  hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge,
  • Tapestry needle (to weave and hide yarn ends),
  • Scissors,
  • 4 buttons (Approx. 2,8 cm)
  • Stitch markers.

Level:

Intermediate

Sizes:

40cm x 40cm (15.75”x15,75”)

Gauge after blocking:

FRONT: after round 8 the pillow is 10cm (4”) wide.

BACK: 16 sts and 16 rows to 10 x 10cm (4 x 4”) using 3.5mm hook with single crochet.

If necessary, adjust hook size to obtain the correct gauge.

Before you measure, please take the time to block your swatch in the same manner that you will block your pillow.

General Notes:

  • The pattern uses US crochet terminology.
  • The FRONT of the pillow is worked in unturned rounds from the center out.
  • Pillow cover is worked in 3 separate pieces: FRONT, BACK TOP AND BACK BOTTOM. They are seamed together. The pillow cover does have a buttoned opening on the back to take the pillow pad in or out.
  • In FRONT, each round builds on the next, and each round starts in the corner chain space.
  • Stitch marker placement: When instructed to place your marker, place on the last st worked unless otherwise instructed. It should lie on a stitch, not between stitches.
  • STITCHES: When in the instructions you have a stitch followed by a number, eg sc14, this means you have to work 1sc stitch into each of the next 14 sts. When in the instructions you have a number followed by a stitch, eg 2sc, this this means you have to work 2 sc stitches into the next (same) stitch.
  • Instructions in square brackets […] are worked as many times as indicated.
  • Instructions in *…* are worked as many times as indicated.

Mosaic Pattern Notes:

  • You can either follow the chart or written instructions.
  • Color is changed after every one round.
  • You can avoid weaving in all those ends by not cutting the yarn when you finish a round. Simply carry the other color along the inside and pick it back up with your hook when you need to use it again.  

How to read the Mosaic Chart:

  • Chart is read from bottom to top and each row of squares represents a quarter of a round.
  • All rounds are read from right to left.
  • Each square of the chart represents 1 stitch or 1 skipped stitch.
  • Whenever you see a square of color dedicated to that round, work single crochet.
  • Whenever you see a square of different color in that round, skip that stitch (make chain). To prevent puckering,  make the same number of chain as the number of skipped sts plus ch1. For example, for 1 skipped st – make ch2, for 2 skipped sts – make ch3, for 3 skipped sts – make ch4, etc.
  • Pay special attention to number of skipped stitches.
  • BLmosaicdc will be worked in these skipped sts from one round below. Remember, BLmosaicdc are always worked in front of chains of previous round.

ch(s) – chain(s) stitch

st(s) – stitch(es)

sc(s) – single crochet

dc(s) – double crochet

  1. Very pretty cushion, it just I don`t think your pattern is representing that cushion. At least not when I try to make it.
    I bought that pattern and I would like to obtain a refund because it is not written correctly. Pitty….
    Pls, reply.

  2. I don’t know.
    I think if I pay for pattern it should be written cleary , I started it many times and simply is not working. I know how to read patterns. Photos are correct but description not so..
    I would like to have a refund pls,

    1. As I said before, I’m always glad to help you out. Contact me by email, send some photos with an explanation where the problems are and we will try to solve them. I don’t make refunds unless you point my mistakes out.

  3. It would be useful to attach video as others do, to avoid complaints and frustration. especially for paid patterns.
